Phishing Simulation Tests

76% of businesses reported being a victim of a phishing attack in the last year.

What is Phishing?

A phishing scam is when data thieves use a fake email to trick you into revealing personal information. Examples include a password or credit card information, or a fake attachment containing malware.

Protecting Your Organization from Phishing Scams

The only true way to protect your business from phishing is Security Awareness. Can your employees spot common tell-tale signs of phishing emails? Would your employees download an attachment from an unknown sender? Want to find out?

Simulated Phishing Tests

  • Discover your current overall level of email phishing awareness while also educating every employee at the same time.
  • Test your employee’s knowledge on email phishing attacks.
  • Receive a detailed report of who opened the email, clicked on links, entered a password, or downloaded an attachment.
  • Instantly educate employees who fell for the simulated scam, showing them what they should look out for next time.

User Awareness Training

Education is key when it comes to securing your data. Despite all efforts to secure your business, weak passwords, social engineering and other poor security practices are the cause of many security issues. IT Weapons User Awareness Training programs can help you take the necessary steps to improve security awareness.

Options include:

  • Easy to consume, time efficient, and module based training programs
  • Simple testing after each program to increase retention
  • Educate users on the pitfalls of security practices, and how they not only affect the company, but themselves as well
  • Teach employees how to create easy to remember and secure passwords

Social Engineering Tests

Do you have procedures in place to avoid voice phishing (vishing) and other social engineering attacks? Our trained security consultants can help you put procedures and education plans in place to protect your business.
